Cristiano Ronaldo has won the Ballon d’Or for a fifth time to move level with rival Lionel Messi.

The Real Madrid forward was named the winner of France Football’s prestigious award at a ceremony held Thursday in Paris.

Ronaldo, 32, previously won the award in 2008, 2013, 2014 and 2016.

Messi finished second in the voting while Neymar, who joined Paris St Germain this summer, was third.

Ronaldo and Messi have won the Ballon d’Or between them every year since 2008.
